Don’t let the cheesy title fool you – Susanne Bier’s new film is a gentle, poignant tale that steers clear of the romcom tropes. Starring Trine Dyrholm as a cancer survivor coping with her husband’s infidelity, and Pierce Brosnan as a brusque, anti-social widower, Love Is All You Need might initially strike you as a simplistic make-the-lonely-older-ladies-feel-better affair, but with its moments of sharp humour, tinges of tragedy, and likeable performances from everyone involved, Bier’s film stealthily transcends the norms of its genre.
Today, the news broke that Susan Boyle – aka SuBo, the nation’s SWEETHEART – has signed away the rights to her life. Meaning, in other words, that next year some dreadful people with clipboards and cameras and booms are going to start filming a proper movie that’s all about her. Obviously, the question that is now on everyone’s lips is who on earth is going to portray the hirsute songstress? Luckily for you, here at Best For Film we’ve taken the time to wade through our “GR8 ACTORS” file and pull out some top names that could be in the running. Take note, filmmakers, this top ten list of potential SuBos is red hot.
